Critics and fans everywhere are loving Sofia Coppola’s masterpiece, The Beguiled! Starring Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst, Elle Fanning, Oona Laurence, Angourie Rice and Emma Howard, this artistic drama is a must-see for the summer!
New behind the scenes photos of the movie have just been released to the public, but they aren’t just any photos, these photos have been created using the Collodion process. The Collodion process is an early photographic process that was invented in 1851, just a little bit before the time period of the movie’s plot. This is a very complex process that requires the photographic material to be coated, sensitized, exposed and developed, and this all must be done in less than 15 minutes. I can’t even imagine being able to complete all of those steps in such a short amount of time! Although this may have been a difficult process, it was actually the only way that the events of the civil war could be documented during that time period. The Collodion Process, however, is able to give photos aesthetic qualities that go perfectly with the time period and theme of the movie. Some of the most historical components of photography are highlighted in this process.
The process is incredibly unique and anything can happen. Scratches, erosion, pitting and stains can appear and/or disappear during the process, giving each photo a sense of wonderment and delicacy. Check out these amazing photos below and make sure to see The Beguiled while it’s still in theaters!
